lack of blood causes numbness
The numbness of your fingertips could be caused by variety of reasons and medical conditions. If the numbness is more pronounced in the mornings and is accompanied by some bluish discoloration, you may have a blood circulation problem. In a few cases, numbness in fingers may also point to deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals. In extreme cases, your symptoms could also be caused by a form of peripheral nerve damage caused by Type II Diabetes. If there is a history of diabetes in your family, please consult a physician at the earliest. You should also visit a doctor if the numbness persists for several days at a stretch, or if you begin to experience any pain.However, your symptoms appear similar to those seen in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a form of repetitive strain injury (RSI) caused due to prolonged repetitive movements of the hands and wrist. Commonly, such an RSI is linked to the nature of your work. For example, extended typing on a keyboard can produce pressure on the carpal tunnel, which forms a tunnel through which the median nerve runs to your fingers. Any pressure on this tunnel can compress the nerve, leading to the type of numbness you have described. You could also experience similar numbness if you sleep in an awkward position with your hands under your body, putting pressure on the nerves of your fingers. If so, a simple change in sleeping positions will reduce the numbness.
Numbness in the fingers is usually caused by bad circulation. To help relieve numbness, try massaging your fingers or wrapping them around a warm mug of water. If the numbness persists, see a doctor.
